Feature Car: Ian Wood's Holden EH Van

Gen IV-Powered EH Panel Van

Street Machines are often an extension of an owner’s personality and they come in all shapes, sizes and colours (well, maybe except the trendy builds like VK Blue Meanies and the seemingly ageless Falcon GT clones). 

Ian Wood’s 1964 EH van is a great example of a personality shining brightly. Sure, it’s got a modern powertrain… but look at the aesthetic treatment. Gorgeous HOK Emperor orange metallic paint mixed with a cream leather trim may not seem so out of the ordinary. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find the Mexican-style airbrushing, sugar skull buttoned seats and western-style embossing/carving in the leather.

Either way, the shoot was pretty extensive, given the addition of the chandeliers (installed just for the shoot on aluminium trussing from Ian’s company) and orange lighting out back. But I think you’ll agree that the finished images were worth the effort.

This shoot appeared in the December 2022 issue of Street Machine.
